  • Diabetic wounds that are slow-to-heal or not healing
  • Foot or leg ulcers or sores
  • Surgical wounds that have opened (or “dehisced”)
  • Skin grafts or surgical flaps that are not healing post-surgery
  • Open wounds caused by radiation therapy
  • Bone infection (called osteomyelitis)

Even internal ‘injury’ where no open wound exists such as:

  • Select acute traumatic and crush injuries
  • Radiation cystitis or proctitis
  • Reconstruction of jaw or bone (related to mandibular osteoradionecrosis)

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO) Therapy is a treatment in which the patient breathes 100% oxygen while inside a treatment chamber. The increase in oxygen in the blood encourages the creation of blood vessels and increases the production of collagen, the body’s natural ‘scaffolding’ – both necessary for wound healing. It also activates the white blood cells to fight infection. HBO can be the primary treatment or it can be used in combination with other treatments.
